Where and When is SEMA 2021?

The SEMA Show will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Las Vegas Convention Center between November 2-5. Travelers from out of state should consider the restrictions in place for the areas they are visiting. 

Pandemic Response

As of July 2021, the CDC announced all individuals – regardless of vaccination status – are required to wear masks in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission. Clark County, where Las Vegas is located, falls under the high transmission level based on CDC data at the time this article was written. 

Masks are required at SEMA 2021. This may change, so continue to check public health guidelines and review SEMA’s health and safety guidelines before visiting.
